In IL-2 and in 'S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl', when people are in trouble they say "Stanye Booshe" or something similar.

Can anyone give me a literal translation of this phrase? I've tried looking it up in my Russian phrasebooks, but none of them have any references to "Help me I've been shot". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cheers!

"Prygai s parashutom" perhaps?

Bail out!

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think its that. The chaps in STALKER say it when they get wounded and are lying on the ground.

Pilots in IL-2 say it when a bad guy is on their tail.

It's some kind of a call for assistance as far as I can tell.

It means something like "anyone". (I'm not a native russian so I could be wrong, but I think that's it)

In pronounciation i'd say second best guess is

XXXXX - Vyshe!

Number XXXXX - Higher!

That could be right. The context would be appropriate.

A quick check of my closest phrasebook to hand states :

anybody = "kto neeboot"

...which is pretty close to what I've been hearing I think. I'm going to check again tonight after work. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And how different is that from how I spelled it in my original post? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif I realy should not try to learn a foreign language primarily from video games. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
